K-Laser For All | Symmetry Health Center in Alameda and Oakland
Symmetry Health Center in Alameda is very excited to announce the arrival the K-Laser! Now, both our Alameda and Oakland offices are outfitted with this FDA-cleared class IV laser, the best laser available on the market!
What is K-Laser?
As a class IV laser, the K-Laser has the ability to penetrate up to 4 inches deep! This unique ability is what allows the laser to repair damaged tissue on a cellular level. The K-Laser utilizes dual beam technology; one beam is responsible for penetrating deep to repair tissues, and the other beam is used to alleviate pain.
Why is the K-Laser such an effective healing tool?
Oxygen is one of the most essential components of healing. Unfortunately, when a region of your body is experiencing pain and inflammation, this region is also experiencing decreased oxygen supply. The K-laser increases blood circulation to the area it is treating, resulting in an increase in oxygen proliferation to these tissues. The K-Laser increases blood flow by creating tiny local temperature gradients on a molecular level that stimulate a cellular environment where blood cells are more likely to flow. In addition to oxygen proliferation, increased blood flow also provides inflamed tissues with much-needed nutrients, immune boosting cells, and maximizes the (ATP) energy output of each cell. This not only allows for a decrease in pain, but actually encourages damaged tissues to heal by rebuilding collagen.
How much does it cost?
In an attempt to make laser treatments more affordable to our patients, we are happy to announce that we have recently cut the cost of our laser treatments by almost half! Now, one laser treatment will only cost you between $25-45 per session. We are aware how essential this service is to the healing process and want to ensure all of our patients can afford this unique and valuable service.
How many sessions do I need?
The number of sessions needed varies based on the region of complaint, severity, and length of time this inflammation has been present. We generally recommend a minimum of 6-12 visits for maximum effectiveness. Conveniently, the treatment sessions take approximately 5 minutes and can be added on to your regular chiropractic treatment.
We have seen the exceptional effects from the combination of chiropractic adjustments to mobilize to the joints, structural care to ensure the load is distributed throughout the body properly, and K-Laser therapy to heal the damaged tissue on the cellular level.
Please ask our chiropractors and doctors if you are a candidate for the safe, painless and effective K-Laser therapy in either our Oakland or Alameda location!
